To encourage participation in CPD programs that include risk management content, LAWPRO will offer a $50 Premium Credit (to a maximum of $100) for each qualifying CPD program you complete. The Risk Management Credit is applicable to Standard coverage, and cannot be applied to Run-off or Excess policy premiums.
To qualify, you must complete the online Declaration on LAWPRO's website by September 15 each year, indicating which approved program(s) you completed between that date and September 16 the previous year. The maximum $100 credit will be applied to your insurance premium for the following year, and will be reflected in the invoice sent to you in October.
You can claim the credit for participating in an approved CPD program via a live or archived webcast,
provided you watch the entire program and have a copy of the program materials. You are also eligible for the Risk
Management Credit if you chair or speak at a qualifying program, provided you attend the entire program.
Completing one Homewood e-Learning course through the Law Society's Member Assistance Plan (www.myassistplan.com) also
qualifies for one $50 premium credit.
The LAWPRO Risk Management credit is based around a twelve-month period that runs from September 16 to September 15,
with the credit to be applied to the subsequent premium year
(e.g. programs attended and declared between September 16, 2017 and September 15, 2018
qualify for the 2019 credit).
You can also claim the credit for reviewing an approved program as a video replay, provided you watch or listen to the entire program and have a copy of the program materials.
